Some days are hard. The realization of an empty womb is something difficult to bear.
For me, it has has been a journey to the deep and dark corners of my soul.
I’ve been alone, like I’ve never been alone before, or since. When no one else around me understood what I was going through, understood how I felt b r o k e n…
When my husband and I were dealing with the hurt differently.
When I couldn’t see a woman growing life inside of her frame, because it hurt my own heart.
When the clouds seemed to be like a wall, and I couldn’t see the light.
Do you feel like that sometimes? Like you are lost in hurt, in sadness, in anger?
Ladies, I have been there! And, now I know that we still have hope in midst of difficulty, in the midst of trials…
My journey continues from a journey to the deep and the dark, to a journey to the heart of God.
Somehow, miraculously, God lifted me up. He held me in His hands and comforted me.
God does this differently for each person. For me, I finally realized that I was not alone. I took comfort in God’s Holy Word. Little by little, verses started to move the clouds aside.
I then was able to understand how Romans 8:28 says,
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Even my situation, my hurt, God is using it for good! He has plans for each and every one of our lives (Jeremiah 29:11), and they are plans for good!
Even this, even what you are going through right now! God is using it to shape you and mold you and make you more like Him!
It is so hard to see God’s hand in the midst of difficulty…but He is there. He was with me, He is still with me, and He is with you right now!
Let’s hold firm to the truth in Deuteronomy 31:8,
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Finally, I was able to see Him. To see Him in the midst of the difficulty I was going through. And then, I was able to have hope and see light…
I am so thankful that I was able to come out of the depth of my suffering. And now, I have hope!
I have hope for my life. I have hope for my marriage. I have hope for my future. I have hope that, although my womb is empty, my heart can be full, as well as my house!
I pray that today you have hope as well. If you don’t, reach out to God. Seek Him. He is the One who we can truly hope in! Hope can be found in Him!Leave a Comment
